this bio gives me a lot of feelings i never want to return it to the library

DATING THEO RAEKEN WOULD INCLUDE-

  • When he sees you for the first time in years on the first day of school, he walks right into a row of lockers
  • He’s sorta cocky around you before asking you out, always smirking and winking at you
  • You are completely and helplessly oblivious to the fact that he’s into you, which frustrates him endlessly
  • “Are you flirting with me?”
  • “Have been since the second grade, but thanks for noticing.“
  • He cleans up his act when you reject him the first time he asks you out, claiming you haven’t considered dating guys with egos ever since you laid eyes on Jackson Whittemore (He’s a good guy, really, but you can’t stand what he put Lydia through)
  • Scott asks you why Theo’s been asking about you lately with a knowing grin, and merciless teasing from the pack ensues once you let out a groan
  • You’re the only person who can make him nervous, and he’s got the sweaty palms and racing heartbeat to prove it
  • Theo shows up at your door in the pouring rain with a bouquet of your favorite flowers, apologizing for his previous behavior and hoping you’ll give him another chance 
  • Needless to say, he’s very surprised when you kiss him then and there, the both of you getting soaked (He would never admit it, but he planned to do it in the rain because “it was more romantic”… CLICHE AF)
  • He likes to rest his hand on your lower back when he’s walking next to you, his fingers mindlessly tracing patterns on your spine
  • Theo absolutely melts when you kiss him beneath his ear on his neck
  • He likes to pull you into his arms and kiss the top of your head when he hugs you
  • He meets your dad before he takes you out on your first real date, since your dad opened the door for him and is sort of suspicious of him at first, but is soon genuinely impressed by how much Theo likes you
  • For your first date, he takes you to the cutest little diner for breakfast
  • It was cute until you bet him you could eat more pancakes than him
  • “Theo, it is humanly and inhumanly impossible to consume thirteen pancakes.”
  • “You don’t need sugar in your tea because you’re already too sweet, sunshine.”
  • “Oh my god Theo, please stop.”
  • “You’re really adorable when you blush, you know that?”
  • “I AM NOT BLUSHING.“
  • Theo takes you to the aquarium afterwards, and he falls a little bit in love with you as he watches you in awe of all of the fish
  • He totally buys you the massive stuffed shark when you guys are leaving, and just to be funny you buy him a little clownfish
  • He keeps it in his glove compartment because it makes him think of you
  • He calls you sunshine because seeing you never fails to brighten his day
  • Theo always gives you his jacket, partly because he likes the way you look in it, partly because he likes displaying the fact that you’re his, and partly because he loves the way your smell lingers after you take it off
  • Theo always just knows when your period is, and has a tendency to sneak in through your bedroom window with as much takeout and candy as he can possibly hold
  • Whenever you’re upset, he likes to lay down with you. Your head is tucked into his chest and his arm around your waist, his other arm propped up on a pillow with his hand stroking your hair.
  • You literally leave him breathless when you wash the makeup off your face when he’s over at your place late one night
  • When you self-consciously ask him what he’s staring at, he presses you against the bathroom counter and trails kisses up your neck
  • “You’re just really beautiful, is all.”
  • OVERPROTECTIVE THEO
  • “I get it, my girlfriend is hot, but is the staring really necessary?”
  • “T, did you really need to punch him?”
  • “He was staring at your ass! Only I’m allowed to do that!”
  • *Theo whacked with extremely thick bio textbook*
  • “I can’t help it that you have a great ass, sunshine.”
  • *whacked again*
  • Malia is a very close friend of yours, and although she is initially suspicious of Theo, she eventually puts your happiness first
  • Surprisingly, Theo is pretty old fashioned when it comes to certain aspects of dating
  • He opens doors for you, refuses to let you pay on dates, always offers you his coat, and his manners are beyond impeccable
  • You shyly explain to him that your parents want to meet him properly, expecting him to be reluctant, but he’s lights up at the idea of officially meeting your family
  • Your mother falls in love with him the moment he walks through the door, and is sold on him when he tells her he knows where you inherited your beauty from
  • Your siblings appreciate the fact that when they pelt him with food when your parents aren’t looking, he returns the gesture rather than ratting them out (You pretend to ignore the conspiratorial looks they exchange)
  • You’re a little nervous when he goes to help your father do the dishes, extremely worried that your dad will scare him off
  • “Mr. Y/L/N, your daughter is incredible, and I would never do anything to hurt her. But if I ever did, she’d kill me before you even got close to it.”
  • Your dad laughs at that, and you’re relieved to walk in a few minutes later to find the two joking around like they’re the best of friends
  • Theo is definitely the jealous type, but he also respects the fact that you have guy friends, and they really start to like him after they realize how cool he is about it
  • The pack is very wary of your relationship with Theo, mainly Stiles
  • “Stiles, I really appreciate that you care, but Theo is a great guy, and he makes me happy.”
  • You’ve been close with Lydia since before you could walk, and she’s surprisingly supportive of your relationship with Theo
  • “I haven’t seen you this happy in years, Y/N. You deserve it.”
  • Theo has a newfound respect for Lydia after he hears about it, even though a majority of your pack is right about him
  • Even though he may not be the best guy around, his intentions towards you are completely and unwaveringly genuine 
  • You’re with Stiles the night Donovan attacked (Theo had no clue you would be there), and call Theo up immediately after the incident because you’re a little shaken up and need to talk to someone
  • He never tells Scott about Stiles killing Donovan, because you know about the Donovan incident and swore Theo to secrecy until Stiles was ready to say anything (Theo feels intensely guilty about the whole thing, and he won’t use this bit to his advantage)
  • Liam is very protective of you, and makes it clear to Theo that he does not approve
  • “You really don’t like me, do you?” Theo asks Liam one day after you leave the library, having noticed the glares he’d been shooting him all throughout their shared free period
  • “Not particularly. Most of the guys she’s been with make her think they’re different, treat her like shit, and then they leave. Y/N deserves a lot more than that. I don’t want to see her get hurt again.”
  • “Liam, I would never hurt her. You have my word on that.”
  • Liam is a little thrown off by how sincere he is, and begins to trust Theo only after he carries you all the way from the high school to the hospital after the doctors hurt you
  • Theo had never truly been terrified by anything until he hears your heartbeat slow a little as he sprints to the hospital, and he realizes just how in love with you he is
  • He doesn’t leave your bedside until Melissa forcibly removes him from the room so they can run tests on you, but she sees how distraught he is and allows him back in as soon as they are done
  • Your mother breaks down at the sight of you all bloody and bruised, and she nearly crushes Theo as she hugs him and thanks him for saving your life
  • Your father pulls him in next, and he doesn’t have to say anything for Theo to get the message
  • It’s three AM and you still aren’t awake yet, and your mother is sleeping with her head resting on your father’s lap as your siblings sleep with limbs entangled with Theo’s for comfort (He hasn’t let go of your hand for hours, and sleep seems like a foreign concept that can’t possibly apply to him)
  • When you peek your eyes open hours later, Theo smiles at you, and you’re struck by how absolutely gorgeous he is, despite the bags under his eyes and the worry on his face
  • “Did anyone ever tell you that you’re very pretty, and its very unfair?”
  • He laughs, a relieved and slightly hysterical sound, pressing a gentle kiss to your temple as you rub the sleepiness from your eyes.
  • “I think you’re on a lot of drugs right now, sunshine.”
  • Luckily the only lasting damage is a minor concussion and a few lingering scars, but Theo is still vigilant in making sure you have everything you need and are well taken care of
  • “I’m going to get changed, I’ll be right back.”
  • “Need any help with that, sunshine?” He asked with a smirk.
  • *Theo hit in the back of the head with a book*
  • He tries teaching you how to skateboard, and somehow by the end of the day you’re pulling off tricks he’d only ever seen on TV
  • On the way home from one of your many beach trips, you open the glove compartment and find the little clownfish from you first date, and that’s when you know you’re in love with Theo
  • He literally can never keep his hands off of you, and he’s big on PDA
  • Theo knows you’re uncomfortable with making out in public, and he respects that, but it doesn’t stop him from kissing you lightly whenever he gets the chance
  • When you’re alone, all bets are off
  • That boy can kiss like a god
  • His kisses are slow and sensuous, and he takes his time appreciating your lips, mouth, and every inch of your neck
  • He’s a massive tease, and leaves playful love bites and lets his lips hover over your skin just to hear you groan his name
  • When he’s jealous, his kisses are fast and hard, leaving you just as breathless (Hell, Theo could just walk into the room and leave you gasping for air)
  • He absolutely loves the way your fingers entangle themselves in his hair, and the sound of your voice moaning his name completely undoes him
  • Theo drives as carefully as he possibly can when you fall asleep in his car, trying not to wake you up from your peaceful sleep
  • “You talk in your sleep.”
  • “I do not.”
  • “You say my name a lot, you know that, sunshine?”
  • “You’re an asshole.”
  • You have a thin scar on your back from when the dread doctors attacked you, and when he sees it for the first time he sucks in a ragged, pained breath
  • “I will never let them hurt you again, alright? No one is laying a hand on you.”
  • He claims he can’t tie a tie, but secretly he just likes the way you smile softly at him as you expertly tie it for him
  • Your younger siblings absolutely adore him
  • He’s a total softie when it comes to kids, and it melts your heart every time you see them playing together (Your sister conned him into wearing a bright pink tutu as he played baseball with your brother, and you have photographic evidence of the event)
  • Theo’s corny AF and totally quotes Romeo and Juliet at you
  • “You do know they were together a grand total of three days before they ended up killing themselves?”
  • “I was trying to be romantic!”
  • *you mock swoon*
  • “Sunshine, you’re lucky you’re cute.”
  • He cuts a deal with the dread doctors that so long as he kills Scott, no one else, including you, has to die
  • He sends you off to Lydia’s lakehouse with her for the weekend, claiming you need to spend some time with your best friend
  • It breaks his heart as he watches you pull out of the driveway and shoot him one last brilliant smile, knowing the next time you see him, you’ll hate him
  • Theo doesn’t know much for certain, but the one thing he’s always been sure of is his need to keep you safe, no matter the price
  • When attempting to kill Scott, he can’t go through with it, because goddamn, you’ve given him a conscience
  • Theo, look, I know all you want is to keep her safe. I do too. But this? This isn’t the right way. We can help you, Theo, if you let us.”
  • He’s frustrated and angry and sad and a million things at once as Scott grips his shoulders and sends him a sad, knowing smile, and Theo realizes that Scott is in this position every single day, having the power to save everyone but at a terrible, terrible cost
  • He realizes that the right decision, the decision you would make, is never the easy one
  • Forgiveness is one thing the McCall pack is known for, and although you’re hurt by the discovery that he’d been allied with the dread doctors, you realize that everything he’d done was to keep you safe, and he made the right decision when it mattered
  • Lydia leads him to the nemeton so that he can rescue the chimeras that they’d all believed to be truly dead, but a chance encounter with the doctors in her home one night leads to her catatonic state and eventual admission to Eichen
  • Theo and his band of chimeras lend all the support they can to the pack, and he is genuinely surprised by how easily they accept him (although Stiles a tad begrudgingly)
  • “You were honest, T. Thats all that matters. We’ve all made bad decisions before. Hell, Allison once tried to kill Derek’s pack, and we all forgave her once she changed and realized the errors of her ways. We’re not going to fault you for mistakes that any of us would have made should we have been in the same position as you.”
  • You’ll never understand just how much those simple sentences mean to him
  • He doesn’t miss the way your breathing hitches and the pain that flickers in your eyes whenever Allison’s name is mentioned, and you’re grateful to have his warm hand envelop yours and remind you that its okay to not be okay
  • While Scott and Stiles go off in search of Kira, he stays behind to work on the whole Liam ordeal (Scott doesn’t blame Liam for what happened on the supermoon, but he doesn’t believe Scott)
  • He comforts you about Lydia, and vows to bust her Eichen of there as soon as the opportunity arises
  • The first time he says “I love you” its as the two of you are watching the sunset from his rooftop
  • Its whispered in awe as he watches the fading sunlight cast a rosy glow over you, and you can’t help but pull him into a deep kiss afterwards
  • “I love you too, T.”
  • He gets a rush of elation every time he tells you just how much he loves you, and the feeling of you saying it back is a high he can never get enough of
  • Theo is smug bastard sometimes and enjoys leaving the occasional hickey on you where no one but him will see (He would never leave them somewhere visible, as much as he wants to, because he really doesn’t want to embarrass you)
  • He’s a little annoyed by the fact that any marks you leave on him are gone within hours, but to compensate he buys the two of you matching simple silver rings, with the other’s initials engraved on the interior and the phases of the moon on the exterior
  • Theo has an entire album in his phone dedicated to candids he’d caught of you
  • The sight of you in one of his shirts never fails to make his breath catch in his throat
  • He walks you to class everyday, even if his class is in the complete opposite direction (the teachers love him though, and they don’t mind when they see him walk down the halls with a lovestruck grin on his face and his arm around your waist)
  • He presses a kiss to your cheek in hello and one to your forehead in goodbye
  • Holding hands with Theo entails his fingers interlocked with yours, and his pinky has to be on the outside
  • You take corny pictures every time you see a photobooth (you plaster them all over your room and he keeps his favorite ones in his wallet)
  • Ice skating dates that end with him on his ass more than his feet and the both of you laughing harder than ever before at each other
  • He loves surfing, and takes you to the beach every chance he gets
  • Building beach bonfires together, your head resting on his chest as he absentmindedly points out the constellations to you
  • Knowing that through it all, Theo will always be there for you
  • Having someone who loves you with every ounce of his being, and loving him just as much
  • Waking up to “Good morning, sunshine.” for the rest of your life.
  • “I love you, and I promise to love you every day until my heart stops beating. Maybe not even then. We’re going to be just fine, sunshine.”
